Do yorself a favour and go take a look......
So today I share my first two Designs with you.....
My first layout is titled
'Happiness'This layout is for and about my teenage daughter, so I wanted to use bright colours teamed with black to go with the 'teen' feel.
I used the following 2 Crafty Chipboard:
Zig Zag Borders
Fine Heart Borders
Line Words - Happiness Borders
Indian Feathers Set
I used the same technique on the feathers.
I made sure the stamping was fairly random, I certainly didn't want them to look 'perfect'.
I painted the fine heart border and a few triangles black. I turned these on their side to look more like arrows or 'play symbols'.
The black is really grounding against the bright colours, and helps direct the eyes into the page.
I'm really happy with how this layout turned out.
It suits my teenage girl perfectly.
My second layout is titled
and is about a cute little moment I captured between 2 cousins who were meeting for the first time.
For this layout I used the following 2Crafty Chipboard:
Lattice Leaf Set
Mini Travel Words Set 2
Film Strips Small
I painted it black and then added Dimensional Magic to give it a high gloss/resin finish.
I also did the same with the Assorted Arrows, the lattice leaves and the film strip.
I love how this adds extra texture, and allows me to add more layers.
To bring in some more contrast and texture, I embossed one of the polaroid frames using an aged metal emboss powder. I love the finish!!
Thanks for popping by, I hope you've found inspiration here today.
I can't wait to share more designs next month.
Much scrappy love,
